Rebuild-U at Penn State

Rebuild U’s  missionis to develop personal connections through hands-on service by reaching out to those in need and actively engaging the community locally and around the world. By utilizing Jewish values such as Tikkun Olam, repairing our world, we can work together to make a difference in the lives of others.

Rebuild-U is an innovative new organization to Penn State! As the founders, we are able to shape this organization with our passions to grow both our community and ourselves. We hope that Rebuild-U leaves an impact and legacy of meaningful service to the wonderful university and it’s surrounding that we call home.

The Beginnings of Rebuild-U

Students recognized a lack of direct and hands on service opportunities to be a part of while obtaining an undergraduate or graduate degree at Penn State. Thus, Rebuild-U was developed to not only provide these opportunities, but also to show students how service can already fit into the landscape of their lives.
